KAMLOOPS - It is going to get spooky this weekend in the Tournament Capital.

Halloween is a time for sweet treats and scary surprises and Kamloops doesn't plan to disappoint. 

It is a week of fangtastic fun during Fright Week at Fun & Games where until Halloween you can take night tours and haunted maze tickets get you special deals on tokens and virtual reality.

Dr. Padova's Halloween Carnival started yesterday, Oct. 26, but you haven't missed all the fun because it will be at Tranquille Farm Fresh until Oct. 28. The carnival starts at 5:30 p.m. until 10:30 p.m. There are plenty of spooky tunnels and buildings to bring life to the spirit of Halloween.

Does an old courthouse sound scary? Well the one in Kamloops is haunted. The ghouls and spectres are making their appearance at the 2nd Annual Haunted Olde Courthouse until Oct. 29. This haunted house is meant as a scarier attraction aimed at the older crowd. The Admission is $5 and it starts at 6 p.m. All proceeds to Kamloops Makerspace Society.

The B.C. Wildlife Park is hosting Boo at the Zoo 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. nightly until Oct. 29. The park will provide Halloween-themed fun for all. For more information, click here.

The Ghost Train is at the Kamloops Heritage Railway today, Oct. 27, and tomorrow at 7 p.m. A dark and mysterious journey is fated for those who dare to take the journey. Nightmares are the only thing guaranteed on this train.

Today Nights of Fright is taking place from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. by Sunset Valley Farm at 3275 Tranquille Road. Creatures lurk in the corn maze and witness the fate of those who dared to bargain with the chainsaw massacre. You can purchase your tickets online or at the door.

If you need more goo in your life, go to GROSS Science for Halloween at BIG Little Science Centre, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Oct. 28. The science centre says dress up in your Halloween finest and explore GROSS Science. You can make fake blood, Gloop-to-go, and try out some scary sensory touch boxes. It should be boo-tifully educational and fun.

It's not only the dead that come out for Halloween, sometimes superheroes make an appearance and this time they are going to be dancing. The Superhero Dance Party is taking place on Oct. 28 at Lyons Landscaping from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. If superheroes aren't enough, this family-friendly event will also have fireworks. There is more information about the event on Facebook.

The Western Canada Theatre is asking "do ghosts and goblins have dancing shoes?" because the 7th Annual Halloween Dance Party is back on Oct. 28 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. If you've got it, haunt it at this event. Click here for more details.

No blood here but you can sip something red and equally tasty. Wines and Screams is taking place Oct. 28 at the Monte Creek Ranch Winery. There will be a haunted vineyard tour. Tickets are $45 for Wine Club guests and $50 for Non-Wine Club guests. It promises to be spooktacular.

Are you in the mood for brains this weekend? If so, take part in the Zombie Walk. The undead will assemble behind The Grind and end at Red Collar at 2 p.m. on Oct. 28. The rules of the walk are simple: look, act, sound, smell like and be a zombie.

The Trick-or-Treat Train is scheduled to leave the station on Oct. 29 at 3 p.m. This is a family-friendly event that promises not to scare the little ones. There will be characters, upbeat music, and fresh fall air. A stop will be made at the Pumpkin Patch to pick out the perfect pumpkin to take home and carve. Click here for further details.

Eat, drink, and be scary this Halloween. If we missed an event let us know in the comments below.
